Every month, there is at least one new bubble tea shop opening in Vancouver, and as a foodie, I can barely keep up with the names of the shops, or even which place tastes the best. Once in a while, there is one that catches my attention, and I am about to introduce you to one of my recent favourites. To be honest, I think the quality from this new shop beats some of the bigger brands out there.Continue reading “ThirsTea Vancouver (賊好喝)”
Right across the Boiling Point in Richmond, there is a new-ish bubble tea shop, Bobii Frutii. It is originated from Taiwan and, this is the first Canadian store. They specializes in photogenic bubble tea with no preservatives, stabilizers, or artificial coloring. In addition, all drinks are served with their signature pearls, original, brown sugar, or butterfly pea flavour. Few days ago, I was invited to a media tasting, and I was very excited to try out their drinks to see if they are worth the hype.Continue reading “Bobii Frutii”
It has been awhile since my last visit. I remembered coming here a year ago, when it first opened. Today, I revisited this cafe, because I won a $25 gift card at a giveaway from Quantum Coffee. However, this would not change my honest review about this cafe. When I first came here one year ago, I loved the vibe and how spacious and bright this place it. More importantly, it had a lot of space for customers to work and study. Unfortunately, this recent visit was disappointing. Everything changed.
I was very excited when I heard there is a newly opened dessert place in my neighborhood. Bambu features Chè or Vietnamese home-made beverages, dessert drinks, and puddings. With over 70 locations in the U.S., the first store in Canada finally arrived in Vancouver. Since the store is very close to my house, I just can’t resist to come here more often.

Charisma Cafe & Dessert House is a spacious cafe located outside the Stadium-Chinatown skytrain station. It specializes homemade cheesecakes and beverages, such as bubble tea and coffee.

Regarded as the Starbucks of Japan, Nana’s Green Tea recently opened its first North American store in Kerrisdale, Vancouver. Prior to its grand opening, I was lucky to tag along with Jason to its media event. Its minimalist and elegant interior design is paired with wooden chairs and tables. Though there is limited seating, it is not too packed. After the media tasting, I went back again on a weekend afternoon, and the line wasn’t too bad, as I only waited for 15 minutes.
We tried some signature desserts, drinks, and savory dish in the media event. Continue reading “Nana’s Green Tea”
What is better than drinking bubble tea in a pouring day? Drinking more than one bubble tea in a day. Today, I am glad to be invited to a media tasting at Sharetea‘s new location on Cambie Street. The interior of the shop is very similar to the Richmond location one, except that it is larger, which is full of artistic decors. Compare to other locations, it is definitely quieter, so I would say it is a good study or hangout spot with friends. Continue reading “Sharetea [Cambie Location]”
